To me this is the right kind of exclusive, a nonessential figure. A figure that not everyone wants, and will be harder to find. The collectors who really want this will seek it out. Alot better than a main hero or villian. Imagine if you could only get Rita from Walgreens or Walmart. Both of their distribution is a$$.
I have not bought any of these figures, but I'm really tempted too. I understand they want to make the line continue as long as possible. Alot of collectors will just stop with MMPR.
Heck, we can almost make an entire team with the dragon armor. We have Red, Black, and Green.
I want to get into this line, but with the dragon armor figures I can't. I'd rather they be the basic, or the movie versions... and Marvel Legends slow down.
Watched a bunch of Samurai Power Rangers as a kid.
I don't collect Power Rangers figures and my knowledge of the franchise is limited to Mighty Morphing but I like what I'm seeing from Hasbro; they seem to have a nice blend of sculpt, articulation and accessories. As for the exclusives I don't really see much of a problem, so far all of the exclusives have been variations of the main characters.
I didn't get into Bandai's Legacy figures, and with all the paint errors and the lack of weapons, I'm glad I didn't. But the Lightning Collection looks to be an amazing line, and we only one wave and couple announcements in. I'm ready to order this one the moment it goes live on Walgreens'website (and the SDCC exclusive once it on Hasbro Pulse).
Honestly I'm really excited about this line from Hasbro, and this figure is no exception. My only problem with it is that is a Walgreens exclusive. Other that that I believe Hasbro is doing a nice job with the PR license, and honestly I'm just gonna buy the MMPR team, some extra Rangers and some villains since I'm not familiar with newer Rangers shows
this looks awesome. hope they will release him to mass market too. wouldn't mind finally getting around to getting a 6" Rangers team , I passed on the Bandai stuff but kinda wish I hadn't .

I've been seeing a lot of comments on social media of people complaining about how Hasbro has been handling the line since they took over. Now being I am not personally invested in this line, its not something I personally collect I have no idea how much of that is just normal Internet bluster and how much of it is legit complaints.
I see it more as internet bluster as these Dragon Shieldversions had minor scenes throughout the whole Mighty Morphin show. It wasn't a frequently occurring event. It's cool to look at but not quite necessary. The Gold Ranger being an exclusive is a legitimate complaint as hewould be partof the main roster in Zeo. But given the property they have, I doubt Hasbro wouldn't re-release Gold in separate packaging. That's easy money to make.The Dragon ShieldBlack Ranger being in WalGreens is a more obtainablethan the Dragon Shield Red but it's very possible for Black & Red to have non shield releases since that's their default form. I wouldn't be too surprised if Dragon Shield Red does become a separate release later on. I don't see why people are worried that they won't be able to complete their rosters because of these "exclusives". Regular releases of red & black are bound to happen. The only other "complaint" would be their choice of waves of various different Ranger teams but I see it more as an opportunity to venture out of the typical Mighty Morphin era and get characters we normally wouldn't get so soon. Sure Mighty Morphin lasted a while and the most popular but it's not the only team.
